weighs in on the latest obama care developments. president clinton recently said president obama should keep his promise, let people keep their doctors and insurance plans. so what is his latest assessment of the affordable care act? juan carlos lopez of cnn espanol is just back from a one-on-one interview with clinton. how did it go? what did he say about obama care, juan carlos? >> wolf it, went very well. the president on his way to of brazil, clinton global initiative. we did speak about what he said about obama care. i guess this is obama care 2.0 launched today, this is what he said about his previous statement and been possible future problems within health reform. >> is it because you are setting the way for mrs. clinton to run, and second, are the problems with obama care limited to the website? >> the answer to the first question is no. first of all, i said nothing about this. not one word until the president himself spoke. and it was obvious to me listening to him that he wanted the american people to feel that he had kept his commitment and that they didn't understand that h
dose of obama care failures and embarrassments keeps rolling on. yet president obama still holds another pep rally today for his ev ever faltering health care law. this time the pep rally had no pep. a new report says about a third of all the obama care enrollees may not be enrolled. that's the reported failure rate on the so-called back end information that is sent to insurance companies. in other words, thousands of the nation's fast food
president obama for years saying you like your plan you can keep it, period. you had democrats for years and to this day you had harry reid just this week saying the president didn't lie. you have nancy pelosi saying the president didn't lie. people can keep their plans or get them back. further in 2009 democrats had the chance to vote for an amendment that would allow millions of people to keep their health care pls and they voted against it. don't tell me president obama misspoke when he lied about it. this was a lie. >> i didn't say misspoke. >> this is an overly broad political statement. >> let me say this. at the the end of the day i don' care who you are. you can't make the promise that you can absolutely keep the coverage you have. you couldn't have made it before the law and you can't make it now. >> why don't we start over, igor? you're admitting he lied. on the fundamental promises of the way the law was sold. we now know back in 2010. to be fair why not start over. >> you already have millions of people who have coverage for the first time. millions of people on medicaid, low
about what a disaster obama care is. millions are learning they cannot keep the doctors they have on their insurance plan. they were promised they could but they can't. the website is such a mess people can't sign up. it is plagued with huge security risks and we are left with no choice. this law has to be repealed, replaced and like they did when they were selling the disastrous low to the american people, democrat democrats are lying again to save the law. they say republicans have no solutions. the republicans do have an alternative plan. it could save $2 trillion over ten years. we want you to join the conversation. log onto our facebook page. reince priebus is with us. >> thank you for having me on. you rattled off a bunch of problems just to name a few. >> just to name a few. but the president challenged republicans. i think this was a chase the rabbit trying to divert attention scheme like the class warfare speech yesterday and trying to talk about aids the day before. tom price has a specific plan. it wouldn't be my plan but it's better than what we've got. there is a plan
into a tragedy other than a tragedy. and they keep trying to pull stunts to repeal obama care, now that hundreds of thousands of people are getting health insurance that they didn't have before. they really need a new thing. they think they would like to hit him now on iran. according to the hill, quote, house republicans are legislati options that would explicitly rip the obama administration's nuclear deal with iran. quote, a handful of house gop lawmakers tell the hill that the party is debating how best to show disapproval for the iran agreement struck shortly after congress left for the thanksgiving recess. this is the new plan. republicans are going to try to make president obama look terrible for negotiating that new agreement over iran's nuclear program and in the process of making him look terrible they, of course, will show the country that they, themselves, republicans are much better on the issue. they are much more trustworthy, much more sober, much more sane when it comes to dealing with complicated and sensitive issues like iran and nuclear weapons in the middle east. republicans
able to keep their plans. now with the obama care website kind of sort of working, the president is making his sales pitch to the american people again. >>> also in national news, we already know the train was going too fast. now we know the engineer says he was in a daze before it derailed. what else will we learn when investigators update us this hour on that deadly train crash in the bronx? >>> and the pop
. let's preserve freedom and choice and health care. fine, keep the obama care health plans in place. give those as an option for individuals. but we should also give individuals the freedom to choose a plan that doesn't have the mandate of coverages because that is what is driving up the cost. >> it doesn't work. >> it's not going to work anyway. but if you want to set this up as an insurance pool which means you're paying insurance and you're a man and you don't want to have paternity coverage, you've got to pay it too. that's the way it works out. and i'm not arguing whether this should have been done or not, that's the only way it works. >> it's not working out. >> but that's -- what you're talking about is -- >> does anybody believe the cost curve has been bent down? i mean -- >> there are arguments. i'm not picking up the flag and waving with this, but if you have peter orszag or somebody else come in, they will say, yes, it will bend. >> it is also because of what was happening with things like health savings accounts and higher deductible plans, which is really where the move
look for that right here. in the meantime, republicans are trying to keep the focus on the website's problems and targeting blue senators in red states reminding mid-term voters that senate dems voted for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun of me or kind of give me a hard time or website a hard time but you can't give this law a hard time. what was noticeable was the standing ovation
't know how to recover kicks, and try a field goal. but wait a minute, you see auburn. if you're for obama care, you've got to play like auburn. you've got to play every play, keep going. so here's what happened. alabama decides to try a field goal to win the dog gone thing. of course, overtime isn't an option for alabama. they're alabama. so this is what happens. the kid lines up, and they try a 57-yard field goal. oh, nellie, we are down to the wire here. this is going to be short off to the right a little bit, and what have we got? holy smokes, we've got a return by obama care. this is chris davis, he's a believer, he's got all those obama blockers out there. he's going to go all the way! it's going to work! it's going to work! look at obama care, it's going to work! they ain't giving up. 109 yards in jordan harris stadium, 87,000 fans loving every bit of it, and guess what, four times that many people went to the website and signed up today. you see that? liberals, democrats, progressives, believers in obama care. don't ever give up. it's never over. even the arrogance of alabama who t
is also freaking out. >> we were talking a few minutes ago about obama care. and you mentioned it's the law of the land. if it's the law of the land, the president shouldn't keep ignoring the law. a president under a constitutional system doesn't have the ability to pick and choose which laws to follow and that's the same pattern you see in dictatorial society where it says ignore the law, go with the power of the president instead of the written law. >> the president's a dictator. you know, they're running out of talking points when they turn to fear. and now creepy uncle sam is back. the group backed by billionaires is again trying to scare young people from buying insurance. so why the freakout? because the law is working. 27,000 people enrolled in health care plans through the federal website just on tuesday. 56,000 signed up over three days. and the demand's even higher. more than 3.7 million people visited the site this week. these are real people who are getting covered. >> helen signed up for the market place wednesday. she's a single mom who's self-employed and putting he
away from republicans politically. so far obama care, not just indicts democrats on overpromising, on the incredible promises that they made, if you like your insurance, they can keep it, all of those promises, it also indicts liberalism on the ability to restuck tur the economy. but again, those are im probably books probable wishful thinking for all of that to play out. what i think 2014 might end up looking like, cheerleaders don't matter in this football game, the field has been set, what it could look like is a combination of if if you like your plan, you can keep it as the employer mandate kicks in, they get kicked off of them. and tarp, 2008 bailouts for the insurance companies who can't afford to insure only sick older people. >> that's jumping ten steps forward, john. >> but more probable at this point than the alternative. >> will is -- will is very excited about the possibility of another tarp style bailout backlash. but he's a couple of move moves ahead of himself. the reason republicans are so invested in this, they have advertised obama care as the end of freedom as
claimed responsibility for the shooting yet. as we learn more details, we'll continue to keep you posted. over to you, steve. >> thank you very much. >>> prescription for america, president obama making his case to a group at the white house youth summit yesterday by comparing obamacare to the civil rights movement. >> haven't been discouraged by how hard it's been because stuff that's worth it is always hard. civil rights movement was hard. giving weapon the right to vote, that was hard. making sure that workers had the right to organize. that was hard. >> is that a fair comparison? let's talk to fox news legal analyst, peter johnson, jr. >> i guess if you think this is about martin luther king or others, it's not about something that's gone crazy, if you think it's not about a tax and spend plan to redistribute wealth in america and you want to make it about discrimination and class and race and gender warfare, then it's about civil rights. so if you want to romanticize something or talk about the struggle, if you want to talk about a crusade against rich people and middle class people
their technology because they don't trust it, that will hurt them in the long run. president obama said the nsa does not listen in on phone calls but outside the borders the president says the nsa is more aggressive. the idea of big brother keeping track of our activity online just not sitting well with these companies. john? >> so alison, here is the thing. i feel like facebook and google know more about me than my wife does. isn't it a little bit hypocritical for some of the companies to talk about privacy issues? >> i think it is a little bit of hypocrisy going on. google and yahoo! collect information. it's the bread and butter of their revenue is to collect our information, so they can put those ads strategically where they want them and here is more proof as to why this speaks of hypocri hypocrisy. last month goingal greed to pay $17 million to settle a lawsuit that it place cookies on computers using apple's safari web browser for a two-year period without getting authorization. google was able to circumvent safari's privacy settings without users knowing or consenting to it. another off
months of battling negative headlines the white house is looking to turn the page on obama care today. the president will kick off a new three week campaign to refocus the public's attention to the positive aspects of the health care law. senior administration official -- >> even you can't keep a straight face. >> exactly. >> doesn't that say it all? >> a lot of times after the show seriously she will look at me -- we're all sitting here the president said this. she does this occasionally -- i got nothing. i got noing. >> i have hope. >> didn't julie andrews say that. >> don't you have to be nice. secondly i think you ought to listen to what i have to say bill kristol, senior administration officials tell politico the white house will target different benefits of the law each day. >> that's going to be a short campaign. >> roughly 100,000 people signed up for health insurance through the federal exchange last month. that's up from just under 27,000 people who successfully signed up for coverage in october. meanwhile the white house picked up a key legal victory yesterday as the suprem
the d.c. council decided to do it, too. i agree with those voters. i'm going to keep pushing until we get a higher minimum wage for hard working americans across the entire country. >> note, president obama invoked new jersey, the state of governor chris christie, who may be a republican candidate for president in 2016. this is a difficult goal to accomplish because many republicans, even though the president disputes this argument, make the ar umeguments is going to cost jobs. i know our next guest will make that ar ument as well. >> lawmakers nearing a deal on the budget. we know today being the 4th, the 13th being the deadline, does it look like we're going to have an agreement? >> it does. modest agreement, two years, $90 billion, raising the budget caps about $45 billion of ee quester relief for defense department, 45% for domestic programs. does not decrease the deficit. offset by additional revenue and budget cuts. they would not be tax increases and not cuts to medicare and social security or agriculture program but much more mundane things like fees and asset sales and cushin
to do it, too. i agree with those voters. i agree with those voters and i'm going to keep pushing until we get a higher minimum wage for hard working americans across the internet. >> president obama supports a $10.10 on minimum wage. certainly never mind $7.25. any sort of rates for their workers would end up getting passed down to the consumer in the way of higher prices for food. there are no hard numbers on this, but a burger would go anywhere from $3 to $3.50. that's the big debate. how big of a deal is that if the price of a burger goes up 50 cents? a lot of labor experts say it's not that big of a deal because a lot of these fast food workers use about $7 billion in social services a year. if they need less in those social services, you'll pay less into those social services, basically raising the bottom raises the whole. the protests are scheduled to start around 11:30. we'll see how it goes. >> katie, thanks so much. our katie tur. >>> dominick has a special retail story. >> let's check out what's happening with francesco's. you can see there right now, certainly not a good sto
, if republicans are saying that, well, if you like your plan, you can keep it, and that was a lie the president put forward, if they're saying we need to end obama care, they're going to be taking away health insurance from people who have had it for a while. and that itself can be a powerful counterattack. but interestingly enough, it's not just democratic government who's embracing this, it's a handful of republican governors as well. and i think that that is a really revealing sort of point. governor kasich of ohio said the reason we're doing the medicaid expansion is it's a human issue, it's a moral issue that these people need to be covered. and i feel like those voices are going to begin to get more attention as well. >> so, susan, suzy is not wrong on this point, one of the things that republicans are right about when they have angst about the government, that once it is implemented, it is hard to go take it away. so this point that once people have the obama care, talking about repealing it or taking it back becomes a very different issue than having never implemented it. does that mean
's a swarovski star, keep a camera on that tree. you'll see the guys climbing up that tree. if i can just -- >> right. >>> let's move now to our political gut check of the morning. president obama is recommitting himself to closing the growing gap between the rich and the poor. in a speech he delivered from one of washington's working class neighborhoods, he said making the economy work for all americans is in his words the defining challenge of our time. here to talk more about this, john avlon, cnn political analyst and executive editor of the daily beast. good morning, john. >> good morning. >> the president has talked about this and pushed to are this issue before. why now? >> the president and white house is pushing this idea. he wants to make this a signature issue of his second term. first of all going back to his roots as a community organizer, this is a president who cares about these issues. thiscy fundamental fault line in the current debate inside the democratic party. you have the centrist democrats of the bill clinton era that were always closest to business. then you have s
